35 TELC ENGLISH! LANGUAGE COURSE ALCHEMY CHAOS INTO CREATIVITY WHO IS IT FOR? • For teachers of every range of experience who want to engage their students, energize the classroom and learn new language teaching skills. • Teachers of all languages (the workshop will be delivered in English but the techniques and ideas are suitable for any language) wishing to reevaluate their work in an interactive age demanding day. WHEN AND WHERE   23 March 2017 in Frankfurt/Main   24 March 2017 in Nuremburg   25 March 2017 in Dresden OVERVIEW Language courses are often seen as less than a “real” course. Corners seem to be cut, both academic and mental. Teachers often feel they have no impact without seeing the profound change this can have on a learner. This is a session on tried and trusted techniques and practices for the language course classroom to get around the essential dichotomy of unwilling participants and the fact that everyone learns, and teaches, in different ways. We are often slung in the direction of buzzwords and fads and rarely seem to engage with the reality that most people would rather eat their own nail-clip- pings than go to a class … any class, at any age. We take a holistic approach to getting the best from all elements of a language course and ensuring that students and teachers progress and enjoy it. It will be interactive, there will be workshop elements and learning and doing … there will be NO communal singing or anybody forced to do star jumps. There will be shouting, throwing things and probably some sweeties involved somewhere. TOPICS • Teaching multilingual/multidisciplinary classes of varied ages • Classroom control • Swiss Army knife lessons: ensuring you have back up plans up your sleeve • Lighting the spark of language learning toward the dynamite of knowledge • Communicative teaching exercises that will work at all levels • Motivating the terminally not bothered (students and staff) TRAINER Thomas Jones has lived in more than 10 countries and delivered training in over 65.
